STUDENT PITCH COMPETITION
New for 2020!
A virtual platform made it possible for De Nora to incorporate the first-ever Student Pitch Competition in place of poster sessions. From the numerous applications received, we selected 17 students who pitched their research projects. These projects were evaluated by De Nora judges using the following criteria: description of problem/opportunity, innovation and technical feasibility of the solution, potential impact, quality of the visual support, and poise/style of the pitch. The winners received internships with De Nora as well as cash prizes. The engagement and quality of the presented research projects were impressive.
